EART NK-C1 Classic Telecaster
Pros
• Lovely playability.
• Smooth neck with no rough edges.
• Pickups sound really nice (the sound is clear, mature, and punchy).

Other Features:
• Mahogany Body with Flame Maple Veneer: Mahogany is known for superb resonance and rich, lower-mid focused tone. Combined with a gorgeous flame maple veneer, EART NK-C1 is dressed to kill.

• Contoured Body Traditional T-type guitars are known to have a “slab” body that have bad ergonomics. NK-C1 has a forearm contour and a belly cut to improve players’ comfort. The scooped heel joint also helps with shredders for easier high frets access.

• Hand Polished Stainless-Steel Frets Stainless steel frets provide unrivalled durability and smooth playing surface for nice and easy big bends. Each fret ends are also hand-dressed for playing comfortability.

• U to C Compound Neck Profile and Compound Radius: NK-C1 has a unique U to C compound neck profile with thicker shoulder on the lower frets, slowly tapers down to a slimmer C to higher frets. Along with a 7.25” to 9.5” compound fingerboard radius, NK-C1 provides excellent playability for both chording and soloing.
